Bush and his administration in reference to the United States of America post-9/11 policies. to place it more accurately, he argues that the Bush administration skillfully used the shock that affected the country once the fear attacks, so as to attain its own goals, as well as the war in Iraq and Afghanistan. The author stands on the bottom that the United States of America authorities used mass media as means that of pressure on the mass audience. Moreover, media served as suggests that of psychological pressure on Americans since they accelerated the worry that flooded minds and souls of American individuals. At a similar time, the author implies that American’ reasoning skills were much unfit due to the overwhelming power of mass media that bombarded the consciousness of American citizens with terrible news and even additional terrible forecasts regarding the longer term of the USA (Gore, 2007).
Communism in the Cold War "The seeds of totalitarian regimes are nurtured by misery and want, they spread and grow in the evil soil of the poverty and strife. They reach their full growth when the hope of a people for a better life has died. We must keep that hope alive." as said by Harry S. Truman on march 12, 1947 in The Truman Doctrine.
What do you make of O’Brien’s definition of “truth”? Tom O’Brien defines a true war story as a story that embarrases the storyteller and makes the listener feel slightly disturbed after hearing it. War stories, as O’Brien defines them, do not have a happy ending or a moral. He even goes as far as to say “if a story seems moral, do not believe it.
Zakaria begins the chapter with a paradox, a statement that appears to be self-contradictory or opposed to common sense but close inspection contains some degree of truth or validity. He uses paradox to state how the economy and politics is after the cold war in 1991 and how it affected the Americans and the market during that time period. He states that the economy is moving forward but the politics is troubling. Zakaria also uses diction, word choice, to bring out his point about the Americans and others on how the politics has been troubling on the violence and civil strife that is happening around the world. The audience is mostly educated middle class Americans, who is worrying about their future.
Sam Roberts in the article A Decade of Fear argues that Americans turned against each other because of McCarthyism. Roberts supports his argument by explaining and describing the many occurences of paranoia caused by McCarthyism. The author’s purpose is to persuade the reader that McCarthy’s gross grab at power caused tension between Americans. It is clear that the author is directing his claims to an older and more educated audience, due to his cynical tone. I strongly agree with Roberts’ claim.
As he notes in an essay of his, "Are You Now or Were You Ever?", the following excerpt: “My basic need was to respond to a phenomenon which, with only small exaggeration, one could say paralyzed a whole generation and in a short time dried up the habits of trust and toleration in public discourse.” shows that he attempted, and achieved, to refer to the anti-communist hysteria that was bubbling. As he points out in the same essay, both in Salem and in America, the government became stricter and ruled with an iron fist in order to maintain the social unity intact. Miller began to develop a connection “between Salem and Washington” in his mind, until gradually, The Crucible came to life. (Miller

Most of the population disagreed with both of the policies, however, the benefits and the positive effects outweighed for many. War Communism had a significant impact on the peasantry and the proletariat, it was extremely unpopular and not successful enough to continue. It has been suggested that War Communism was an attempt by the Bolsheviks to go straight to socialism, it is more likely that it was a reaction to wartime conditions, justified by ideological position. The effect of War Communism on the proletariat was immense, Lenin nationalised businesses to place the economy on a war footing. All industries came under direct control of the state, managers were forced to stay in their positions and private trades were banned.
Allegory: During the writing of Brave New World, there were difficult economic and political challenges the United States was facing head on. Aldous Huxley took these ideas and took inspiration from them and created similar occurrences in his novel. One of the more common ideas was of the early belief of communism.

I wondered how intelligent people could commit such atrocities. History records the effectiveness of Joseph Goebbells 's propaganda.

The bellicose tend to adopt an invalid stance / comparative to
Much like their personality, people during this time period could never settle because they always thought that more is better. Most of their decisions are based off personal benefit. The Great Gatsby contains rhetorical queues, such as logos, ethos, and pathos, that validate that the pursuit of “The American Dream” transforms society into greedy, heartless people. At this time, people only thought about social status because that determined who you partied with and how much money you had.
